Mateo, On Sensibility (video)

Posted by | Blog, Film | No Comments

Mateo Rutherford, of Green Faerie Farm in Berkeley, CA has been farming a few thousand square feet for 25 years. He’s got goats and chickens and rabbits and vegetables and SO MANY FRUIT TREES. Currently, the only product he sells commercially is his goat’s milk under the guise of pet food. It turns out that we have decided, collectively, that it should be illegal for small scale farmers to sell their produce to their neighbors and community members. Because we might make them sick. And they might sue us. Hm.
